Egyptian Football Association (EFA) chairman Hany Abo Rida has dismissed reports suggesting a possible moving of the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) headquarters from Cairo.

"All talks about moving the CAF headquarters away from Cairo are false. Nothing has been mentioned about the matter by anybody at the general assembly I am attending at the organisation's congress in Ethiopia," the FIFA council member said in a statement on the EFA's official website on Thursday.

Abo Rida is participating in the general assembly that has resulted in Ahmad Ahmad of Madagascar winning the CAF presidency, ousting long-serving president Issa Hayatou from the position.

Hayatou, who is facing prosecution in Egypt for violating the country's Competition Law, is expected to end his football career, though he is still an International Olympic Committee member.
